Opthamologist for cataracts, macular degeneration and keratoconus in Charlotte, NC
I have reached the point in time where cataract surgery is necessary. I suffer from extreme sunlight sensitivity, macular degeneration and keratoconus in both eyes. I am very concerned about the sunlight sensitivity increasing after surgery. I am not totally comfortable with my present optamologist and want to get a second opinion and to find the best of the best in the Charlotte, NC area to do this procedure. Thank you for your response.
